SCOTT SLANT: High-echelon hoops visits

Presented by MAZ-TECH AUTOMOTIVE. Thursday, February 13, 2020. San Diego State brings its No. 4 standing in the polls into ExtraMile Arena on Sunday. As you may have heard, the Aztecs are the second-highest ranked team ever to play Boise State in the facility. The highest-ranked squad was Cincinnati in December of 1999, and that…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Upward mobility returns

Presented by MAZ-TECH AUTOMOTIVE. Wednesday, February 12, 2020. Boise State came out of the tipoff Tuesday night playing lock-down defense and moving the ball well on offense—but couldn’t shoot worth a hoot. The lead over Air Force at the half could have been 20 points, but it was only seven. After the break, though, the…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Another fork in the road?

Presented by CLEARVIEW CLEANING. Tuesday, February 11, 2020. Boise State’s first game against Air Force came four weeks ago. The Broncos suffered a frustrating 85-78 loss in Colorado Springs.

SCOTT SLANT: Stuck in a bad situation

Presented by MAZ-TECH AUTOMOTIVE. Monday, February 10, 2020. It was far from Boise State’s best performance, but the deck was stacked against it Saturday night in the 70-61 loss at Utah State.

SCOTT SLANT: What can the Broncos do at USU?

Presented by BACON. Friday, February 7, 2020. How can Boise State possibly win Saturday night in Logan? Since January 18, the Aggies have been fit to be tied after letting the Broncos get away in ExtraMile Arena. In one of the most memorable comebacks in any Boise State sport, the Broncos rallied from an 18-point…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Appreciating Justinian Jessup

Presented by VETERANS PLUMBING. Thursday, February 6, 2020. Somebody said in the past week that Justinian Jessup isn’t getting enough props for breaking the Mountain West career record for three-pointers. That’s probably because he doesn’t have the flamboyance of the guy he succeeded. But to eclipse BYU’s Jimmer Fredette, who seemed to launch at will…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: The record, and then the expected grind

SCOTT SLANT: The record, and then the expected grind

Presented by BACON. Wednesday, February 5, 2020. Abu Kigab was absent (still injured). Derrick Alston was ice cold. And Justinian Jessup cooled off after reaching his long-awaited milestone. So who would Boise State turn to with its offense lulled into lethargy at Wyoming Tuesday night? It would be senior Alex Hobbs, with freshman Max Rice…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Broncos take it up a level

Presented by VETERANS PLUMBING. Tuesday, February 4, 2020. Boise State should take nothing for granted when it plays at Wyoming tonight—especially at 7,220 feet above sea level. But this is a game that the Broncos should win and must win if they’re to be taken seriously now that they’re in second place in the Mountain…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: The second three was key

SCOTT SLANT: The second three was key

Presented by BACON. Monday, February 3, 2020. At the beginning Saturday night, it looked like Boise State was facing Fresno State or San Jose State again as it vaulted to a 22-point first-half lead. Then it was apparent the Broncos were dealing with Nevada, still a talented bunch that’s accustomed to winning. Jalen Harris, the…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Nevada and all that Jazz

Presented by VETERANS PLUMBING. Friday, January 31, 2020. Since the wild comeback started against Utah State with four minutes left in the game, Boise State has played 89 minutes of floor time and has outscored its opponents by a whopping 85 points.
